Post half term catch up

20170520_140029 (1).jpgAs a mum with a husband who works in a school, life for us very much moves in motion with the academic year.  We have just had our half term break which means we all experience a shift in routine, for hubby and the kids it’s a chance for some well earned wind down time and for me it signifies less crochet time some serious adventure time. Our half term was super busy, lots of trips and experiences as well as some quieter moments too.  The above shot was taken during a picnic, I spotted this beautiful blue butterfly fluttering round this bright pink flower and couldn’t resist a photo!

So here’s a little round up of what I’ve been up to recently.  There was a forest walk…

a beach trip…

where I was able to try out my new crocheted beach bag.

Hubby and I enjoyed a night away without the children, something we haven’t done in a couple of years. We chose to stay in Winchester where we visited the Cathedral…

and the Great Hall…

which holds King Arthur’s Round Table (now known to date from the 13th century, but still very impressive)…

We went to the Living History Festival at the Weald and Downland Museum, a place which is very special to us. My husband and I had our marriage here 4 years ago and we visit it often, particularly when they are holding an event.  We saw musketeers…

which raced to put out a fire in a tiny wooden house…

And lastly my daughter and I enjoyed a day together on Monday, which really was so special as we don’t often have this time just the two of us. We went out for a drink, some shopping and then a picnic lunch where we did some crafting in the park together…

Such lovely memories of a super special week.  I hope you’ve gained some special memories lately too.

Lots of love,
